“St. Columba’s Episcopal Church endorses the goal of zero waste.
To this end, the vestry, clergy, staff and mission groups will plan for waste prevention in facility operations, church services and special events. St. Columba’s is committed to reducing the use of disposables, reusing materials (such as washable dinnerware) whenever feasible, composting organics and recycling when reuse and composting are not feasible.” (Adopted June 2016.)
Rector Ledlie Laughlin has called on all our ministry groups and parishioners to integrate zero-waste practices into their activities on a routine basis.

The Environment committee stands ready to provide hands-on coaching to ministry groups and has issued guidelines and created “zero-waste kits” for groups to use.
